Let this be a lesson to all parents.

Feed your kids the way they've always been fed - with a balanced diet - the way it's been done for 3 million years by responsible adults.

Associated Press said:
ATLANTA - A Superior Court jury convicted a vegan couple of murder and cruelty to children Wednesday in the death of their 6-week-old, who was fed a diet largely consisting of soy milk and apple juice.

Jade Sanders, 27, and Lamont Thomas, 31, will receive automatic life sentences for starving the boy, who weighed just 3 1/2 pounds when he died.

Defense lawyers said the first-time parents did the best they could while adhering to the lifestyle of vegans, who typically use no animal products. They said Sanders and Thomas did not realize the baby, who was born at home, was in danger until minutes before he died.
But prosecutor Mike Carlson told the jury Tuesday during closing arguments: "They're not vegans. They're baby killers!" The jury deliberated about seven hours before returning the guilty verdicts.

They don't have to take their kid to the doctor or feed it properly.

Survival of the fittest and all that.

I know. It was a joke :smoker:

Frankly it doesn't matter what the parents culinary preferences and the joke was directed at the insinuation that the baby only died coz the parents were vegan :cool:

But, I maintain, survival of the fittest.

Oh...

and all that jazz.

Well in prison they are gonna have to eat whatever is served to them or they can starve to death. Man, ignorance has no bounds. And I don't care if you are Vegetarian, Vegan or whatever. A baby needs lots of fats proteins and all sorts of other thing to grow normally. Just because the adult chooses to live a certain lifestyle doesn't mean they have to force it on their child from birth. If they had at least consulted with nutritionists, be it vegan or other they would have known what they were doing was wrong. But they think because they are doing fine that an infant will also. Such utter Morons.

was breast feeding not allowed? 6 weeks old.. jeez.

You have to wonder what they were thinking? But being a vegan allows for no animal byproducts of any kind. The human being is an animal after all.:eek:
